Abstract:
Sphaerocarya Dorofeev 1970, being a junior homonym of extant angiosperms Sphaerocarya Wallich 1827 (Santalaceae) and Sphaerocarya Dalzell ex de Candolle 1857 (Olacaceae), is replaced by a new name, Globocarya Doweld nom. nov. (fossil Juglandaceae). The aberrant fossil species Sphaerocarya uralensis Dorofeev is re-classified and segregated into a new distinct genus, Boreocarya Doweld, gen. nov.
